Best of the trilogy.

If you could sum up Enemy of God in three words, what would they be?

Epic, exciting, addictive


What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

I thought he did a good job on the Winter King, but some of the Monty Python-esque women's voices were a bit awkward. Here though, he really comes into his own - more relaxed and reading it almost as if he wrote the book himself such is his understanding of the material.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Both, but it doesn't take much to make me do either!


Any additional comments?

I'm halfway through the audio version of the final book in the trilogy and it has to be said this one, Enemy of God, is the best in the series by some way. It really had me wanting to keep listening especially during the middle section as it was so exciting (and I had read the books, twice, years ago so I had an idea of what happened anyway)!

A predictible Materpeice

Where does Enemy of God rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The author is one of my all time favourites and he does not disappoint in this book. Although I wouldn't reread it, this counts as one of my favourite series of all time.


What other book might you compare Enemy of God to, and why?

As far as I'm aware, apart from the other books in the same series, there is not much to compare Enemy of God to. There are similarities to other Bernard Cornwell books in the sense that the narrator was born to the enemy of the people he now fights for. However no other book manages to mix detailed historical fact with fantasy and legend like the Warlord chronicles do.


What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

A perfect performance. Listening to his voice is like settling into a warm bath, comfortable and comforting.
